Best The Weeknd Songs

The Top Ten

1 The Hills The Hills

The hills is madness. Just can't get enough. Weeknd rose to another level with this hit. Take a bow the weeknd. - Ark-M

This song made me a weeknd fan to be honest. Really chill song

First Weeknd song I heard that made me fall in love. It is amazing and I memorized all the words about the third time I listened to it. Really makes other artists sound like crap.

Nowadays I'm a huge fan of the Weeknd and his latest album Starboy but this is the song that made me like him. Amazing.

2 Wicked Games

This deserves to be number one. The Weeknd's new stuff is great and all, but none of it can compare to Wicked Games. Where do I start? The production is spacious, atmospheric, and almost somber. The lyrics are about regretting your past and looking for love at the lowest point of your life. The multitracking on the vocals in the chorus are outstanding, and the guitar in the background is beautiful. An overall amazing song, and definitely The Weeknd's best song.

Needs to be #1. enough said. Many fans can relate the dark and sinister passion you can hear in the song. Bandwagons just put "The Hills" at #1 because its his "best yet"...No were near this song

Wicked Games always catches me in my feelings, I love the song so much, I am huge fan of The Weeknd and I can relate to Wicked Games. It deserves the number one spot.

You can't compare this song to I feel it coming and Earned It!

3 Starboy Starboy

This is some good stuff! Sure, it's not as good as In the Night, but damn is it great. Let's hope the rest of the album is as good as this is! - Spark_Of_Life

Really awesome song can't stop listening to it.

Dude, this is easily his best song. The beat is phenomenal, the flow is amazing, and is extremely catchy. This is the only one of his songs that never seems to get old.

Number 1 song

4 Can't Feel My Face Can't Feel My Face

Easily the Best song by The Weeknd till date.

This is such an amazing song, by the way why is #23. It should be #1.

Didn't care for this song

5 The Morning

The production values are outstanding out of all of his songs, with jaw-dropping vocals and a beautiful guitar strum is played in the back. What could be better?

One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. The gorgeous guitar instrumental along with Abel's incredible vocals and phenomenal bass lines comes together to create a wonderfully serene production.

The beat is so smooth and the guitar in the background adds so much. My favorite hands down.

Second favourite behind wicked games. I am voting for The Morning because it deserves to be number 2- is better than The Hills, Can't Feel My Face and Starboy

6 In the Night In the Night

So...where to begin?

The production is absolutely fantastic. The synth, while smoggy, is heavily atmospheric and actually sounds like it's part of the powerful bass. The percussion is absolutely fantastic and matches the song perfectly. The Weeknd's performance is a lot less annoying than usual (cough cough The Hills).

But what makes this song truly a masterpiece are the lyrics. They tell of a stripper who was abused when she was younger and the trauma it caused her. This is an absolutely cold story with a lot of offer. The thing is only Abel could pull something like this off. The vocal melody is absolutely fantastic, the framing is fantastic, the progression is fantastic...this is literally perfect. Plus the ability to lip sync to it is fantastic. This is an obvious 5/5. - WonkeyDude98

Once this is released as a single, people will know just how great this song is. As with every song by The Weeknd, the lyrics are beautiful, but his voice is absolutely incredible in this piece.

I agree with the person who said it's not the best. I don't like hearing "She was young but she was forced to be a woman all the time" on my way to play rehearsals.

This is by far the best. It's about domestic violence.

7 Earned It Earned It

After listening this I just fall for this singer.. The most seductive song ever! Event the lyrics are justifiable and beautiful...

Number 14?... Really guys?...this is undeniably his best song... I think it should be #1

Remind me of fifty shades of grey

After hearing to this song... I fell in love with weekend and also 50 shades.. This is the most erotic song I have ever heard... this should be in the 1st position

8 House of Balloons / Glass Table Girls

It's dark, violent, sexual, trippy, and most of all, it's The Weeknd. What more could you ask for?

This is an amazing song that is underappreciated. I'm gonna leave it at that

This song is so amazing it's probably my favorite on the album - Ajkloth

Greatest banger of all time with the dark lyrics that make him great. In 2017, I'm still jamming this more than Starboy - jaspyboy

9 XO / The Host

The background music sets a tone that becomes complete with his almost skeptical yet compelling vocals which persuade you to want to join his lifestyle and experience the story he paints in the song

His flow, voice, and lyrics just bang! Simple.

Amazing. It's dark, it almost makes me want to experience his lifestyle. Should totally be number 1 on this list.

Please please vote. I have voted for all of his trilogy stuff because I am a proper fan of his. This deserved to be higher than CFMF, In the Night and Starboy. - jaspyboy

The Newcomers

? Echoes of Silence Echoes of Silence

The raw emotion and feeling extracted from the vocals all comes together at the bridge where you put yourself in his position and feel what he's feeling. Amazing song

The most amazing song from the lyrics,to the ending where the no's fade to represent him leaving. this song is a work of art

The Contenders

11 Montreal

One of his best songs, yet extremely underrated. His strained yet beautiful vocals tie into the amazing lyrics which give you an emotional and beautiful look into his life. This is definitely one of his more vulnerable songs where he expresses his sorrow and flaws

I can't pick which one is the best, but He speaks French in this song

"Baby I'm a pro at letting go, I love it when they come and go." - Ajkloth

His french is definitely a plus

12 I Feel It Coming I Feel It Coming

There's been comparisons to the Weeknd and Michael Jackson. I think this song is the closest one you can make.

How is this 17! This is his best song, he will never top this. This is number 1 on my list.

This song gives you vibes its for sure bound to be a hit.

I feel it comminG is a very cheerful song. It can make your day beautiful.

13 Adaptation Adaptation

Abel is basically pouring his heart out in this song, should be in the top 10!

My favorite song from Kiss Land and My 2nd favorite song by Abel.

Along with Tears In the Rain, it is the most underrated weeknd song- despite anything before BBTM being underrated. It's a shame he wasn't as popular in his trilogy and kiss Land days because all these badnwagoners vote for songs like starboy, in the night, earned it and cfmf. Although these songs are good, they are nowhere near as good as songs like this - jaspyboy

My favorite song, calming and good to fall asleep to

Its just good honestly plus drake kills it

Amazing song, most relaxing thing to hear

15 The Knowing

The story telling, the video, the passion, all amazing. If this was a later more known work of his, no doubt it would be higher. Definitely a pyre diamond buried under the sheer excellence of "House of Balloons".

No debate. Filled with unimaginable soul and crazy subtext behind the lyrics.

We get an idea of the type of people who are voting if this is lower ranked than In The Night. - jaspyboy

Definitely should be top ten the level of emotion in this song is crazy such raw vocals

16 Often Often

This should be placed much higher.

One of his more famous works, with a catchy chorus and innovative lyrics

This shows how good of a songwriter the weekend was - Ajkloth

This should be #3 it is so catchy and classic

17 Low Life Low Life

This song is incredible, especially with Future and his silly vocals, which really compliments Abel's soft tone in this song, as well as the amazing beats.

I love this song, it's the first time I understood what Future was saying

Definitely not number 1. The hills is better but definitely top 10

This must be higher than 16 its such a good song

19 Kiss Land

This song is 7 minutes 36 seconds of pure pleasure. Back when Abel had full creative control over his work. This didn't sell well, but this was gold. The second part of the song takes the listener to a whole new world.

A beautiful story in a song. The mood he sets with the vocals and instrumental come together to paint a picture of his experiences in Asia that inspired this song and the whole album

Excellent song that splits into two completely different sounds

Dis should go higher, probably one of the best songs he ever done

He pours his heart out in this, amazing song. My favourite by him, he's an amazing singer

Favorite song from him behind Wicked Games. Beautiful chorus and vocals, and the production is outstanding.

Definitely my favourite, amazing vocals and production, and he puts so much passion and emotion into it

Really emotional, it is a beautiful melody.
